An extension from my Australian Gothic drawings, Spiders & Spirographs studies Australian spiders spinning spirographs.

Spiders symbolise great wisdom, mystery and creativity of the cosmos. Patient architects threading their webs. Like the greco-roman Moirae (The Fates): Clotho (Spinner), Lachess (Alotter) and Atropos (Inflexible/Inevitable) weaving their threads of life – patient, industrious and deadly powerful.

In the psyche everything is connected, both seen and unseen, pluck one thread and the resonance will ripple through the whole web.

Coupled with a plastic Spirograph from the 1980s, whirling fractals. Those infinite repeating patterns echoing the micro to the macro. A strand of code underlying the cosmos.
